Re: Tubeless tyres .... What I've learned so far

this prime minister is, for all his talk of get Brexit done The trashy slogan does contain some element of truth though, we certainly will get done if it happens, done up like a kipper. I wonder why the Lib Dems don't use a counter-slogan "We'll get Brexit dumped" ...now that really does ...
